Export/Import Textlists WinCC Flex 2008

Hi Guys,
Can somebody help - I'm getting nowhere!

All i want to do is copy 1200 message texts into a CSV file exported from WinCC flex.

I have added the pointless second language which i dont need, i have tried with <text> message </text> "<text> message </text>", etc

what ever i do i get the same multiple error message on import

Info : The text '<text></text>' in the file bla bla bla \TextLists\Test\Others.csv'
already exists. Any further occurrence of this text was ignored.

What im i doing wrong?

thanks Steve

looking at the format i.e
Code:
<text>0</text>
<text>1</text>
<text>10</text>
<text>11</text>
<text>12</text>
to 19
<text>2</text>
<text>20</text>
etc
it isnt going to workout anyway - my list is numerically ordered whilst the csv formatting isnt.

Ctrl C /ctrl V Wrist/finger cramps here i come.

You dont have to add a second language. But that you do that tells me that you are using the import/export of texts (Options .. Texts .. Import/Export). Thats is the wrong tool.

Use the import/export found under Project .. Import / Export .. CSV Export and CSV Import.
This is the tool for export and import of alarms (amongst other things) that has been asked for by so many users.

22:04:15.95 Import Info : Others.csv: 0 of 43 elements were imported.

All i did was export existing textlists to csv file and then re-import the file (it hasnt even been opened) - why all the errors?

"others.csv" is a suspicious filename.
It sounds as it has to do with the language export/import.

You should use the import/export found under Project .. Import / Export .. CSV Export and CSV Import.
The default filenames are "Connections.csv", "Tags.csv", "Textlists.csv" and "Alarms.csv".

Yes this is what i'm using as suggested this morning.

Right! it seems the Import dialog file location is greyed out and pointing to the old file location.

I tried a 'Delete temporary files' and in the end i had to close and then reopen WinCC to allow me to change it.

Thanks for your post - you pointed me in the right direction
